Here's the thing. Most of us spend most of our time within range of a wifi signal. In fact, I think many would be shocked just how little mobile data they use, especially those of us that regularly connect to wifi at home, work and at the houses of friends and family.
However, there are those who either have a job where they are out and about more than at home, or others with time to fill on a long commute. So, here are four reasons you might want to pick an unlimited data mobile SIM over any other type.
Yes. A wide range of providers now offer SIMs with unlimited data, whereas a couple of years ago it was just one or two. For the full list of providers, see the section above this one.
Yes and no. They are generally the most expensive SIM from most providers. However, they are often cheaper than very-large-limit SIMs were just a year or two ago.
It’ll be one of three sizes of SIM cards that you need – standard, micro or nano. Deals frequently come with a multi-SIM that includes all three and you simply pop out the one you need for your phone.
Probably less than you think. Though unlimited data SIMs are set to become the norm, most of us spend the majority of our time within range of a wifi signal. Ultimately, the only way to know is to check how much data you use from month to month.
This changes from day to day, but it's easy to find out using the tools on this page. Simply select all providers and sort the deals by monthly cost. The cheapest deal will be the first listed.
Technically no, but it is probably wise to opt for unlimited data. If you have a 5G device and live somewhere you can use it, then you will most likely use a lot more data, since 4K streaming and larger data downloads become a more realistic proposition with 5G than they are on a 4G connection.
